The operating principle of the Beretta break-open semiautomatic UGB25 Xcel is based on short barrel recoil, which keeps the internal parts of the gun clean even after prolonged use. The short recoil and the low barrel axis position almost completely compensate for muzzle jump during firing, with quicker and easier re-alignment of the barrel on the target for the next shot. The exclusive use of special spring dampers on the barrel monobloc allows, when shooting, to dissipate in heat a part of the barrel kinetic energy, decreasing the stress for the parts and in the meantime increasing the shotgun life. The reliability of the operation system is constantly guaranteed by varying the powerful of the new 12 ga. (2 ¾ in.) factory-loaded cartridges, manufactured to industry specifications.

   
   
 

Felt recoil is minimized by: the recoil absorbing short recoil operation system and the Beretta Gel•Tek recoil pad. The low barrel axis position greatly reduces muzzle jump when firing.

 
 
  All versions of the Beretta break-open semiautomatic UGB25 Xcel come with an Optima-Bore® barrel with a lengthened forcing cone for enhanced pattern distribution sensitivity, reduced felt recoil and shot velocity optimization. The internal shape of the Beretta’s Optimachoke® and Extended Optimachoke® tubes is designed to reduce shot deformation and to enhance shot pattern distribution and concentration.

  The barrel of the new Beretta UGB25 Xcel Sporting is extremely strong yet, at the
same time, remarkably light. Designed to be able to withstand the rigors of steel shot, it features a new internal Optima-Bore® HP (High Performance) profile with a longer forcing cone which improves patterning and contributes to reduce felt recoil. The new flush Beretta Optimachoke® HP (High Performance) choke tubes, with lengthened taper, feature an internal profile to reduce friction, improve the density and distribution of the pattern.
